This kind of issue handling is absolutely normal for OS projects. Nobody has 
time to dig into all issues, especially if they require a more specific test 
scenario first. We are all working in our free time and do our best to fix 
bug (this includes rewriting/ cleaning up the code to support easier, side-
effect-free bugfixing).

I know many projects that just close issues of versions they don't support 
any more. If the issues is still relevant, then someone should have added a 
note to it. After all you can always open a new issue and link to the old 

Keeping the list of issues small, makes bugfixing easier, because you see 
the more relevant issues. Also the chance for duplicates is significantly 
lowered if there are not that many issues open.
